Having signed Rickie Lambert from Southampton on 2 June Liverpool attempted to also buy Lambert’s teammate and the Saints’ captain, Adam Lallana, before the 2014 World Cup finals commenced in Brazil. England’s early exit from that tournament meant that almost as soon as the player had landed back on British soil the transfer saga resumed with interest. The Saints’ reluctance to accept Liverpool’s initial offer of twenty million pounds stemmed from the 25% sell-on clause they would have to pay when the Hertfordshire-born youngster moved from Bournemouth’s Centre of Excellence to Southampton’s Academy soon after the millennium. Once Liverpool had upped their offer by about twenty-five per cent from the original figure, there was nothing to stop the midfielder making the move north.
The youngster had progressed well after he had made the short move along the south coast from Dorset to Hampshire as a twelve-year-old. Southampton reached the F.A. Youth Cup final in 2005 where they were narrowly beaten on aggregate by Ipswich Town, and they were beaten semi-finalists a year later. The 2006/07 season saw young Adam appear in Southampton’s senior team for the first time when he played against Yeovil Town in the League Cup in August followed three days later by his first Football League appearance against Preston North End. But he only made the senior match-day squad on four more occasions during that season. In the autumn of 2007, Southampton allowed him to return to Bournemouth on a one-month loan deal and he made three appearances for the Cherries in League One plus one in the Football League Trophy before making five more appearances in The Championship after returning to Southampton. With his teenage years now behind him, the big breakthrough came in 2008/09. Although his club had a miserable season finishing second from bottom and being relegated to League One, Lallana played in 40 of the 46 league matches, scoring once in an early-season defeat at Loftus Road by Queens Park Rangers (he also scored in a League Cup victory over Birmingham City).
Two quick relegations had dented the club’s pride but not the resolve of its players to rectify things on the pitch. Adam Lallana was a regular member of the team that returned Southampton to the Championship in 2011 and to the Premier League after a seven-year absence in 2012, at which point he was named club captain. In that second promotion season, Adam’s reputation grew as not just a goal-scorer but also a goal-maker. It wasn’t a surprise that he adapted well to life in the top division. At the time Liverpool made their move in the late-spring/early-summer of 2014 Lallana had appeared in just under 90% of Southampton’s league fixtures in the previous two seasons and had contributed twelve goals as the Saints re-established themselves as a Premier League club by finishing 14th in 2013 before climbing to a very creditable 8th in 2014. During 2013/14 he broke into the England squad, making his debut in a friendly against Chile at Wembley then in the World Cup he featured in all three of England's group games.
A player who is equally strong with both feet, Lallana's technique allows him to seemingly glide past the opposition despite him not being the quickest or strongest of players. Probably, along with Emre Can, he was the most successful of the summer signings of 2014, quite possibly because he had prior knowledge of the English game. Although his strike rate wasn't as good as it had been at Southampton many of his goals there had come in the lower divisions. Lallana was in and out of the team in the first half of the season but made twenty-one of his forty-one appearances after the turn of the year. His joy at opening his scoring account for his new club against West Bromwich Albion in October was there for all to see and he would add five more goals before the end of the season. In 2015/16 he started 38 games in all competitions and his best moment was probably the last gasp winning goal in a bizarre 5-4 win at Norwich in which the Reds had conceded an injury-time equaliser.
Lallana improved in 2016/17, appearing in 31 Premier League games and scoring eight goals. His development was rewarded with a new three-year contract in February 2017. The 2017/18 campaign was one of frustration, however, and blighted by injury. Lallana did play an hour of the Champions League final though, coming on as a substitute for the injured Mo Salah. Although he maintained his fitness for most of 2018/19, Lallana's opportunities were limited and he made just six starts in all competitions.
Lallana returned to the south coast when he signed for Brighton right before the last round of the victorious 2019/20 Premier League season.
Много глупав спор.Втори Джерард няма и няма да има.Евентуално може да намерим човек, който да вземе неговата роля и да си върши работата достатъчно добре, но дори да направи 4238 гола и да спечели 1231 титли, той пак няма да е Джерард.А да ми говорите за някакви си крусове мрусове, това в крайна сметка са най-обикновени наемници.Може да свършат в крайна сметка работа, но за тях ще е просто работа.Не се заблуждавайте.Футболисти като Джерард и Тоти вече няма.Трябва да сме щастливи, че имаме такъв футболист и да му се радваме всяка секунда, в която е на терена.
Пределно ясно ми е , че става въпрос за Джерард, но .................. Ние сме Ливърпул, ако е рекъл Господ ще е наказан , ако не - ще мачка. Дайте да не правим сметки кой, кога и за колко ще е наказан докато не стане факт (да не чуе дявола) Със или без него сме длъжни да мачкаме.
Имам уникалния шанс и късмет на 11 май /живот и здраве/ ще бъда на стадиона на отбора и ще мога да изживея мига с вдигането на титлата с всички останали на стадиона, ще успея да видя своя идол и най-велик играч на поколението си как вдига така жадувания трофей!
Гледам Наполи - Рома.По едно време Пепе дава топка от неговата врата на крака на Игуаин и чак тогава ми просветва че го гледам нашия човек.Въпреки че си знам че е там , някак си не го гледам с интерес.Интерес и въодушевление които изпитвам когато гледам някой наш странстващ.Едно вътрешно желание да се справи добре и да покаже класа , надежда да чуя как го хвалят и да кажат че е добър.За жалост в този случай това чувство отсъства.Не го чувствам "наш" вече..Знам за интервютата и за коментарите които направиха и самият той и БР , но като че ли чак сега го усетих напълно че той наистина си тръгна.С този си единствен пас към Игуаната напред се сетих за неговите асистенции , добри моменти и като цяло всичко позитивно в него.Оставих на заден план разочарованията от последните 1-2 години и се концентрирах над позитивното.Докато писах коментара се усетих , че всъщност казвам "сбогом" на този човек.Не бих казал че ми е бил любимец и че съм го обичал винаги , но съм му благодарен за всичко което е направил за клуба.Чао Хосе.
